PSW March Top Trade Review – Navigating Choppy Markets

What an exciting start to the year this has been.  

It's been a difficult trading environment, to say the least and this will be the first full year featuring our new Top Trade Alerts™ (Members Only) and I look forward to doing these educational review sessions at least each quarter (our last one was January) to review both our trade ideas and our use of options to make those trade ideas as profitable as possible.  

Top Trade Alerts are sent out once or twice a week via EMail and Text Message from our Basic and Premium Live Member's Chat Room.  These trades are just a very small portion of what we discuss during chat each day, but hopefully a good representative sample of the dozens of trade ideas we share with our Members each week in our Live Member Chat Room as well as our Weekly Live Webinars (replays can be seen here).  

Keep in mind these are just snapshots of trades as of today – it's up to you to take good trades off the table and cut the losses (or make adjustments) on ones that go bad.  We're always discussing adjustments in our Live Member Chat Room – join us there for follow-ups.   

Our first top trade idea for 2015 was UCO on Jan 5th and UCO did have a nice pop and we cashed them out of the $25,000 Portfolio with a nice profit on February's pop to $9.50+.

 UCO has since pulled back and the July $14s fell all the way to 0.15 but now the July $8s are just 0.95 and make a nice way to go long on oil or, you can be more conservative and buy the $6 calls for $1.85 and sell the $9s for 0.70 for net $1.15 on the $3 spread.  

On Jan 8th we took a poke at RIG when they fell to $16.15, selling the 2017 $8 puts for $1.70 for a net $6.30 entry, paired with the 2017 $10/15 bull call spread at $2.50 for net 0.80 on the $5 spread.  RIG has fallen off considerably since, to…

PSW March Portfolio Reviews (Members Only)

What a fantastic first quarter we had!  

Despite being cautious into the end of last year (see our December Review) our paired Long-Term and Short-Term Portfolios have gained $68,000 (9%) in the last 90 days.  Our Long-Term Portfolio has gone from $608,375 on 12/6 to $640,797 as of yesterday – a gain of $32,422, which is 5.3% and perfectly on track for our planned 20% annual gains.  

Oddly enough, it was our usually bearish Short-Term Portfolio that made the big gains over the past Quarter, mostly because we weren't actully that bearish and made some aggressive bullish bets as oil collapsed that have already paid off.  The Short-Term Portfolio was up "only" 65% for the year as of our December review at $165,136 and, because we turned bearish into the recent dip – we've popped to $201,495 on yesterday's close – up $36,359 or 22% in 3 months.  

Keep in mind we are LUCKY when we happen to time a major market move correctly, like we have this quarter – you can't expect to make 10% every quarter, especially when our goal is to remain well-hedged to protect our assets over the long-term.  What we are trying to do is grow our portfolios a combined 20% each year and, in fact, when we hit the 40% mark last month – I made the case for just cashing out – as we had already made our 2-year goal in 14 months.  

UUP WEEKLYWhen you make unrealistic amounts of money – CONVERT IT INTO CASH!   We converted our Income Portfolio into cash last year and, what do you know, the cash has jumped another 20% in value.  That's something we need to consider with our own equity positions, if we trade them in for strong Dollars, we can turn around and use those Dollars to buy equities backed by weaker currencies or commodities – something we have already begun to do in our Long-Term Portfolio

As we've note for the past few weeks, we have been VERY SKEPTICAL of this recent market rally and we've stayed very CASHY and CAUTIOUS in our portfolios now, as the market turns down, you can really begin to appreciate the value of having…

PSW January Top Trade Review – Using Options to Reduce Risk and Increase Profits!

What an exciting start to the year this has been.  

It's been a difficult trading environment, to say the least and this will be the first full year featuring our new Top Trade Alerts™ (Members Only) and I look forward to doing these educational review sessions at least each quarter (our last one was Thanksgiving) to review both our trade ideas and our use of options to make those trade ideas as profitable as possible.  

Top Trade Alerts are sent out once or twice a week via EMail and Text Message from our Basic and Premium Live Member's Chat Room.  These trades are just a very small portion of what we discuss during chat each day, but hopefully a good representative sample of the dozens of trade ideas we share with our Members each week in our Live Member Chat Room as well as our Weekly Live Webinars (Thursday's replay can be seen here).  

Keep in mind these are just snapshots of trades as of today – it's up to you to take good trades off the table and cut the losses (or make adjustments) on ones that go bad.  We're always discussing adjustments in our Live Member Chat Room – join us there for follow-ups.   

For example, last time we did a review, we left off with an EWJ trade in which we had the Dec $12 puts at 0.25 and they were "only" up to 0.47 (up 88%) on 11/22 but EWJ continued down towards our goal at $11, finishing Dec 16th (expiration day) at $11.15 giving us a final price of 0.85 – up 0.60 (240%) per contract!  That was still almost a double from our November Review – who says these things aren't worth going over???

On Nov 6th, however, we had an eventual fail on our BTU spread – it was the Dec $10/11 bull call spread for 0.65 and it did start out well as BTU hit $12 a week later but it never made it over and ended up falling back to $8 – causing the spread to expire worthless for those who held on to the bitter end.  This is why setting stops on…

Using Options to Pay Yourself Monthly Dividends up to 10%

Sometimes we forget the basics.

In our video series, there's a lesson called "The Secret to Consistent 20-40% Annual Returns on Stocks" and I hope you've seen it.  While the low implied volatility of the market has made it a rough year for option selling, we were still able to scratch out just under 30% profits in our long and short-term portfolios.  We also cashed out out Income Portfolio with a 20% profit earlier in the year and we did it by following the BASIC strategies we teach at Philstockworld, not by gambling! 

Not that we're adverse to gambling, gambling is fun – but fun means fun, which means it's a small part of our total investing portfolio while the vast bulk of our money is SENSIBLY INVESTED in safer strategies that are designed to grind out consistently good returns over many years.  Two weeks ago we discussed the long-term advantages of compounding annual growth in "How to Get Rich Slowly" and now we'll begin discussing some basic strategies that can generate those consistent annual returns.

In the "7 Steps" video, we're discussing a basic covered call strategy and we delve into the Fundamentals of stock selection.  At the time (Sept 2013), we were using ABX, which was trading at $19.15 and we sold the November $19 calls (45 days out) for $1.30.  The simple instructions were to wash, rinse and repeat to make up to 40% a year by simply selling calls against the stock.  

As you can see, ABX has dropped to $10.58 since then, down about 40% BUT, had you followed through and kept selling calls, we had a lovely 12-month period in which it stayed in our range and that would have given us 8 opportunities to collect at least $1 for $8 back before the stock turned down in September of this year.  That would have dropped the net outlay below $10 and stopping out at $15 would have been a 50% gain for the year – even as the stock dropped 22% (from $19.15 to $15).

You can't get more basic than that – just mindlessly selling covered calls every month or two and, even when the

Secret Santa’s Inflation Hedges for 2015

Merry Christmas!

I hope you get everything you want this holiday season and, most importantly, I hope you have time to spend with your family.  I love waiting for my kids to wake up on Christmas morning to come out of their rooms so I can videotape (gosh I’m old, there’s no tape anymore) them in those first moments of Christmas morning – how can I not be of good cheer anticipating that?

I have something I can give you for the holidays as well.  Not peace on Earth but perhaps peace of mind heading into the New Year – a way to help insure some future prosperity with a few inflation-fighting stock picks that can brighten up your portfolio, which also can be used to help balance the budget against unexpected cost increases.  

This isn’t an options seminar or one about risk or leverage – these are just a few practical ideas you can use to hedge against inflation as it may affect your everyday life using basic industry ETFs and some simple hedging strategies to give you an opportunity to stay ahead of the markets if they keep going higher. 

We haven't felt the need for inflation hedges since 2011 as the Fed has kept us in a somewhat DEflationary cycle but our 2011 hedges were good for 300-600% returns and we're simply going to repeat the same, simple concepts here to set up good, rational hedges against inflation to insure a financially healthy and happy 2015:

Idea #1 – Hedging for Home Price Inflation

Let’s say you have $40,000 put aside for a deposit on a home but you’re not sure it’s the right time to buy.  On the other hand, let’s say you are worried that home prices will take off again (I doubt this but you never know).  XHB is the homebuilder’s ETF, currently at $33.28 and they bottomed out at $28.50 in October and back near the highs for the year now.

You can sell 20 contracts of the XHB 2017 $28 puts for $2.25 each ($4,500) and that obligates you to buy 2,000 shares of XHB at $28 (16% off the current price) and you can use that money to buy 20 2016 $28/33 bull call spreads for $3.30 ($6,600) and…

PSW December Portfolio Reviews (Members Only)

RUT WEEKLYJust a quick post to summarize our four Member Portfolios.

As noted on Wendesday, we are well-balanced and very, very Cashy in our portfolios as we head into the end of the year.   We've made great profits and we're not sure which way the market will end up so, essentially, we're taking a defensive stance to lock in our virtual gains and, as you can see from Dave Fry's Russell Chart – we're certainly not missing anything as the broad-based indexes (NYSE as well) have been flatlining since October.

As noted on Thursday, our main portfolios, the Long-Term Portfolio, which is hedged with the Short-Term Portfolio began the year with a combined $600,000 ($500/100) and have been holding the $760,000-$785,000 range since November, when we parked our positions in neutral (balanced between bullish and bearish) into the holidays.  The two portfolios are up $179,000 for the year (29.8%) so of course we want to protect those gains!  

Short-Term Portfolio Review (STP):  Back to $165,000 (up 65%) after a scare on Tuesday as the SQQQs got priced really low, for no particular reason.  We'll have to consider if we are too bearish here, or perhaps simply not bullish enough in the LTP.  Remember, this portfolio isn't SUPPOSED to make money – it's here to protect the LTP – this is just a happy accident…

  • DXD – Why do we have so many of those?  We'll leave them this weekend but no point in rolling them since we have TZA for Jan protection. 
  • TZA – Speak of the devil.  Well, since we're killing the DXDs next week, TZA becomes our primary short-term hedge and I'm good with that with the RUT back at 1,180 and TZA is at $13 so the $13 calls at $1 start making money on an over 5% drop between now and Jan – that's what a hedge is supposed to do.  Yes, I know we bought them for $2 (and we lost $10K on the DXDs too) but that's just the cost of our insurance.  We need to forget about that and focus on the $5K we have in

Thanksgiving Top Trades Review – Using Options to Reduce Risk and Increase Profits

Happy Thanksgiving (almost)!  

We added a new feature last month called Top Trades™ (Members Only) so I thought it would be a good time to see how we're doing as well as give a few tricks and tips to our new subscribers.  Top Trade Alerts are sent out once or twice a week via EMail and Text Message from our Basic and Premium Live Member's Chat Room.  These trades are just a very small portion of what we discuss during chat each day, but hopefully a good representative sample.  Let's see how they performed so far:

We already reviewed our first Top Trade Alert™ in Thursday's post and our first 7 ideas are already up a combined 3.7% for the month but, officially, GSK was the actual Top Trade that day, and it's already up 6.1% for the month – a great way to get started!  Also on Thursday, we checked out out 2nd Top Trade Idea for CAT and, with Friday's 4.27% gain, the stock is already up 9% in a month but, of course, we don't just play boring old stocks at Philstockworld – our option trade Idea was:

As a new trade on CAT, I'd sell the 2017 $80 puts for $7.30 for a very nice $72.70 net entry.  That's more than the $5.60 dividend you'd make owning the stock for 2 years and a 26% discount if put to you.  That's great as a stand-alone play or it can be paired with the $100/115 bull call spread at $5.50 and you still have a net $1.80 credit (so net $78.20 entry – 20% off) but 100% of the upside over $100 for the next two years.  

As of yesterday's close, the $80 puts were $5.70 (up 21.9%) and the bull call spread is now $7.35 for net $1.65 plus the original $1.80 credit is $3.45, up 191% in a month on the option play.  Isn't that more fun than just making 9% on the stock?  

This is what we teach our Members at Philstockworld.  Rather than

PSW October Portfolio Reviews (Members Only) – Final

SPX WEEKLYAnd we're back!  

Quite the recovery since last week so I figured we'd better take another look and go over our positions to make sure we're well-balanced.  We're UNbalanced in our recovery, with less volume and more height than we've had before.  Technically, we're looking bullish but, Fundamentally – there are still a lot of questions.  

We'll discuss outlook and such in the Member Chat Room over the weekend, this article is just to check our balances, not an extensive review like we had last week.  I'm on the way to Vegas today ahead of our Live Seminar next weekend (last chance to sign up), so I'm just going to note the items I think need adjusting this morning.

As an overview, last week our LTP was up 19.2% for the year at $596,170 and our STP was up 94% at $194,183 for a total of $790,353 (up 31.7% overall) following our aggressive strategy.  As of Friday's close, the LTP had climbed to 21.5% ($607,710 and the STP fell to 82.5% at $182,498 for a total of $790,208, essentially flat at 31.7%.  We turned more bearish on Wednesday and it may have cost us some gains but our aim into the end of the year is to lock in these profits, not "go for it."  

The more conservative Income Portfolio was up 2.4% last week and finished yesterday up 8.5% at $542,304.  Combined with the hedges in the Income Portfolio, that pairing is at $734,538, up 22.4% for the year and miles ahead of our 10% goal.

Our Butterfly Portfolio was as boring as its supposed to be, up 18.7% last week ($118,740) and up 18.1% today.  The $25,000 Portfolio slipped from $30,745 to $28,802 as we added two bearish plays that, so far, have not worked out.  

The reason we flipped more bearish this week was because we are back in the tops of our channels now AND we're heading into an election where, no matter who wins, half the people will be disappointed – that could lead to a small sell-off at least, along with a dozen other bad things that are going on in the world that we've decided to ignore again while the market engages in

PSW October Portfolio Reviews (Members Only)

It seems we weathered that storm very well!  

As noted in our the last review of our virtual portfolios, BALANCE is the key to riding the market waves and we not only survived recent the 10% drop and 7% pop but we have thrived – with our Short-Term Porfolio holding onto a $94.2% gain (as of yesterday's close) and the Long-Term Portfolio back to 19.2% for the year, for a combined $790,353 off our $600,000 start – a combined 31.7% gain for the year!  

I would say it's time to cash out but we've already cashed out with the Short-Term Portfolio now sitting on $179,243 in cash (92%) and the LTP has $637,800 in cash, which is 107% of the portfolio's value.  That's because we've sold so much premium to others (our "Be the House" strategy) that it dwarfs the net value of our positions.  

Nonetheless, we're only using 34% of our $1M margin as these are, generally, conservative long-term positions.  We went into the weekend leaning very bearish in the STP, protecting our long gains in the LTP and Income Portfolios.  

  • CAKE – Was a disappointment as they lowered guidance on earnings on 6.3% more revenues and they lowered guidance to $2.07 from $2.25 – flat to last year.  Our mistake here was looking at the costs of food products like corn, wheat, etc for basic foodmaking but it was the cost of cream cheese that killed them on the food side.  Last year they topped out in the high $40s and now we are in the low $40s and I'm willing to go long on them but not appropriate for the STP – we'll look to cut this one loose next week.  
  • TNA (not shown) – We bought 25 Nov $63/67 bull call spread on 10/23 (morning post) and already sold the calls back on Friday – making us more bearish over the weekend.  If the market is up, we'll have to adjust these quickly. 
  • GMCR – Getting to be a white whale for us, the damned thing never goes down.  Earnings are 11/19 – I certainly want to see those.  
  • FAS – Part of the other

PSW August Portfolio Reviews (Members Only)

Just a quick post to consolidate our virtual portfolio reviews for easy reference:

What we're stressing this year, above all else is our "BE THE HOUSE - Not the Gambler" strategy, in which we try to be the sellers, not buyers of options premium.  Another very key strategy we're practicing is BALANCE – our Income Portfolio is a very conservative retirement portfolio, aimed at generating a 10% annual income with as little risk as possible while our much more aggressive Long-Term and Short-Term Portfolios balance each other – aiming for 20% annual gains.

Both sets are very much on track for their goals and, at this point, we're more concerned with protecting the profits we have than taking new risks but that doesn't stop us from adding prudent positions, especially as long as the market continues to make new weekly highs.  In fact, we just added an IRBT position to the LTP on Friday (not yet reflected in this update)!

Short-Term Portfolio Update (STP):  Back to $135,000 (up 35% for the year), that's a good sign as we were down to $125,000 earlier in the week so we gain $10K on a little dip means we're doing our job protecting the LTP.  You never really know if your mix is right until it's tested under pressure.  

  • CAKE – Well, I hate naked long calls but we bought back the short calls from this spread and this is what we're left with.  I'm not sure we'll get the pop we need if the indexes are dragging us down but there's also no particular reason to pull this trade so let's see what happens next week.  Our premise here is lower food costs = more profits. 
  • DXD – One of our anchor hedges, just out of the money at $24.54 with 42 days left.
  • GMCR – My white whale at this point.  Earnings not until mid-November.  
  • XLE – Persistently low oil prices will gradually break XLE down, 42 days left. 
  • XRT – We bought back the short puts here when it spiked up, I'm happy with these puts, hopefully we get $8+ as XRT heads back to $85.
  • CI, CMG, FB,

S&P 500 Snapshot: Selloff Ends with a Modest Gain

Courtesy of Doug Short.

Friday was a mixed bag of economic data. Hopes for an upward revision to Third Estimate of Q4 GDP were disappointed when the BEA left the annualized rate at 2.2%. The final Michigan Consumer Sentiment for March was an improvement on the preliminary reading, but it was below the February final and well off the January 11-year high. The S&P 500 spent the day in a narrow range, ending with a modest 0.24% gain, which snapped a four-day selloff. The index was down 2.33% for the week, its second worst weekly performance of 2015 (the worst being the -2.77% plunge in late January).

Well, it didn’t take long for the bulls to jump on their buying opportunity, with a little help from the bulls’ friend in the Fed. In fact, despite huge daily swings in the market averages driven by daily news regarding timing of interest rate hikes, the strength in the dollar, and oil prices, trading actually has been quite rational, honoring technical formations and support levels and dutifully selling overbought conditions and buying when oversold. Yes, the tried and true investing clichés continue to work -- “Don’t fight the Fed,” and “The trend is your friend.”

Option Review

Cypress Semi Draws Bullish Option Plays

Bullish trades abound in Cypress Semiconductor options today, most notably a massive bull call spread initiated in the July expiry contracts. One strategist appears to have purchased 30,000 of the Jul 16.0 strike calls at a premium of $0.89 each and sold the same number of Jul 19.0 strike calls at a premium of $0.22 apiece. Net premium paid to put on the spread amounts to $0.67 per contract, thus establishing a breakeven share price of $16.67 on the trade. Cypress shares reached a 52-week high of $16.25 back on Friday, March 13th, and would need to rally 4.6% over the current level to exceed the breakeven point of $16.25. The spread generates maximum potential profits of $2.33 per contract in the event that CY shares surge more than 20% in the next four months to reach $19.00 by July expiration. Shar...
